Before I begin, I would like to wish all the mom's a very Happy Mother's Day! I hope you all have a lovely day, and that your family is spoiling you!
I've been busy in my craft room, and have a few things to share with you...Let's get started ~
My first card is for this week's challenge at Muse. My super talented friend, Michele Ferguson, created this beauty for us:
I used the same color palette and the Sweet Havana stamp set for my vase, and PTI Bitty Bouquets for the flowers:
My 2nd card is for the May Challenge at CAS Mix Up. I was really inspired by Loll's card Here, and used my new dies from Concord & 9th for my focal point:
To fulfill the requirements for the challenge, I used the emboss resist technique for the background hearts, and gold embossing powder for the sentiment. The bird was watercolored with Brushos, and just for fun, I used SSS white woodgrain cardstock for the branch. I was very happy with how it turned out...Thanks for inspiring me, Loll!
Next is a tag for the current Tag You’re It Challenge. Susan Wuthrich created this really cute tag to inspire us...Here is my take:
The brick wall is an older MFT stencil, and the little girl, dog and grassy hill is from Mama Elephant. My granddaughter enjoys getting tags like this in the mail, attached to a bag of homemade chocolates...she's 9 years old, and lives far away, so it's fun!
************My last project (if you're still with me) is a card I created for this week's Case This Sketch Challenge. Sam Simpson's sketch is perfect for another new butterfly die from Concord & 9th:
I embossed a scalloped circle, then blended a bit of Sea Glass ink behind the butterfly, which was colored with Peerless Watercolors. The die cut sentiment is from Reverse Confetti, and was also colored with Peerless. Here is a close up of the scalloped circle:
